4.0 out of 5 stars Alien Cat Furballs 11 Jun. 2009
By T. Katz - Published on
Format: Paperback
If you've ever wanted to read a book with the stinkiest feet ever, alien cats who yack up furballs and hypnotize humans and smart kids who are really the ones in charge -- this is the book for you! Grossly entertaining and filled with made-up words you'll want to use over and over on your friends and enemies ("slorks" that they are).

5.0 out of 5 stars 8.5 year old boy loved it! 26 Jan. 2010
By Cat - Published on
Format: Paperback
My 8.5 year old son loved this book. Got this and the first in the series "Is that a Dead Dog in Your Locker" for my son and he enjoyed both. Can't wait to let him read the final 2. Highly recommend for about a 4th grade reading level.
3.0 out of 5 stars Let’s face it the author has a fur-tile mind 31 Oct. 2015
By bernie - Published on
Format: Paperback
This series of books has shades of Lemony Snicket. While we are being treated to the shortcomings of the English language and some extremely awful euphemisms, the author gets his point across.

In the meantime we enjoy the mystery of the sick cat in the backpack.

Don’t want to go too much into detail because I don’t want to spoil the surprise in the second book of the Tardy Boys Tales.

As in Harry Potter novels everybody has a last name with meaning. Only difference is that it is definitely not a hidden meaning.

There is nothing really special about this series but it’s fun to peruse through four gems of wisdom such as “… Cats have nine lives, while frogs croak every night,”
